Aspida and Guernsey Cricket Announce Exciting Three-year Partnership for Women’s and Girls Cricket

Aspida Group and Guernsey Cricket are pleased to announce a new partnership to support the further development of the Women’s and Girls game on the island. Aspida will be the official sponsor across all female programmes, from young people’s participation through the recreational game and the senior international representative side.  

The partnership marks a significant milestone for both parties, as we join forces to support and promote the exciting world of cricket on our island we broaden the sport’s diversity in line with the International Cricket Council’s global strategy.

As a locally owned company Aspida is committed to making a difference in the community through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and charity initiatives and supporting the improvement of Women’s and Girls cricket extends this commitment.

Wayne Bulpitt, Joint Chair at Aspida says “We are proud to partner with Guernsey Cricket and extend our support to the women’s cricket team and are excited to be able to contribute to the growth and development of their academy. Our sponsorship reflects our dedication to nurturing talent, and empowering young people. Together, we aim to inspire and grow the next generation of cricket stars. Here’s to a partnership filled with success and teamwork on and off the field.”

The sponsorship will provide funds to Guernsey Cricket to purchase new appropriate womens international representative team’s kit, support with strategic direction and plans for the further promotion and development of participation of the game in primary and secondary schools, and plan competitive cricket at school-age and recreational levels for 2025.

Stuart Bisson, Guernsey Cricket Board member with responsibility for marketing and promotion said “we are excited to work with Aspida to support the Women’s and Girls game, which is one of the foundations for improving participation in healthy activity on the island as well as supporting our ambitions to further improve the quality of cricket at both recreational and international levels”.

Philippa Stahelin who is Women’s and Girls Board lead, stated “This is wonderful and exciting news. Our women’s and girls programme is developing strongly, attracting more and more participants. Aspida’s support will be instrumental in driving our ambitions forward and we are delighted to be in partnership with them. We really can do great things together!

Developing the women’s game is one of our most important strategies, reflecting as it does the ICC’s ambition to accelerate the growth of women’s cricket”, said Carl Brooks, CEO of Guernsey Cricket.  “In 2024, the senior international team has some great fixtures, including the Nordic Cup ICC tournament in Oslo in August.  In 2025 we have ambitions to provide junior and recreational leagues alongside a coaching programme across all levels of ability.”

Aspida’s partnership with Guernsey Cricket reinforces our commitment to empowering youth and complements their other community initiatives. This includes sponsoring and providing volunteer support to The Robotics Club at Blanchelande College.
